When it's this warm outside, the last place you want to find yourself is stranded on the side of the steaming-hot road.

AAA Arizona is reminding drivers to do vehicle safety checks and check all fluids -- including fuel -- before each trip.

Just in case you do need help along your drive, AAA will be increasing their fleet by 20 percent this weekend amid the possibly record-breaking temperatures.

The top three service calls that AAA responds to in the heat are overheated cars, tire failures and battery failures.
